Top 30 Albums 2016

Top 30 Albums 2016

- in News / Stream

2016 comes to the end, so it’s the right time to unveil our last poll!
This year we’ll have two tops, one with known bands, and one with underground bands. Also, to not make “top-300” we decided to use only albums, mentioned not less than 5 times for this section!
This year’s poll based on answers from around 6000 metalheads, again, different people: metalheads, label managers, musicians etc etc.
Of course we can be disagree or even angry on the poll, but, whether we agree or not – numbers are rules the world, haha, this is why I even won’t to comment on any rank listed below! So let’s see who’s won this year!
